What was I thinking? When the lovely Martina asked if I could develop a keto Graham Cracker recipe, I though “Why not?”

There was just one teeny little problem though; here in Australia we don’t have Graham Crackers so I had no idea what they should look or taste like.

So, I called in my US friends and asked them to describe them for me. I then chose the three most popular recipes that I could find and cooked them.

Taking into account all of the similarities between the end results of the baking and the descriptions that I received, I deduced that these keto-friendly graham crackers should be not overly sweet or highly flavoured, but with a kind of malty, cinnamon type flavour.

They should be a study cracker and have fork marks on top. So, I’m desperately hoping that I’ve nailed it with this recipe. Let me know if I nailed it or completely bombed. Regardless, I think these are freaking delicious and will be making them again. Enjoy!

Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and the Swerve until light and fluffy, approx. 5 minutes. This step is really important, so take your time and don’t rush it.

  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low until a dough forms.
  5. Cut a piece of silicone paper the size of your baking tray (or two, if your trays are smaller). Place the dough ball on top and cover with a second sheet of silicone paper.cRoll out until the dough is about 5 mm/ 0.2" thick.

  6. Score the dough with a knife, cutting it into squares. Prick each square with a fork in a repeating pattern. Place the sheet back on top and freeze for about 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 170 °C/ 340 °F (fan assisted), or 190 °C/ 375 °F (conventional). Remove tray from freezer and bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and switch oven off. Re-cut the lines in the crackers and move them apart on the tray.

  8. Return the tray to the cooling oven and leave it there for about 10 minutes. The crackers will crisp up further as they cool.

Why is it necessary to freeze? I only have a small side freezer on my fridge and there’s no room for even a small cookie sheet. What will happen if I bake the crackers without freezing?

Reply

The freezing is ideal because it helps them bake and retain shape. You can skip the freezing but in that case you may have to reduce the baking time by about 2 minutes.

Is there something else you can use if you don't have vanilla powder?

Reply

You can use about 2-3 teaspoons of sugar-free vanilla extract 😊
